Well, today was certainly full of surprises!
It’s great to see Mardy Fish reach his first Wimbledon quarterfinal and carry the US pride strong as the only American left in the draw.
Feliciano Lopez used his Wilson Pro Open BLX racquet to follow up his win against Roddick by coming back from behind and win in 5 sets against Kubot. I said this in my Tweet, but what a ‘talented & tasty’ match!! Girls, I hope you were watching this one! 😉
On the women’s side, unfortunately, Venus & Serena went down today….have to say it was quite a great effort to reach the 4th round after not competing for 6 months & a year for Serena…shows their strength as competitors….for sure, we will see them back winning tournaments shortly.
Petra Kvitova has made her way through the draw very quietly, but tomorrow will be a tougher test against Pironkova.
It’s great to see Sabine Lisicki in the quarterfinals and back playing the tennis we all know she is capable of playing. She is one of the most fantastic players to work with when at the tournaments and hopefully she will find even more success when she takes on Bartoli…it’ll be a tall challenge.
So as you probably have been hearing, the grunting during the Wimbledon women’s matches has been at the highest levels and definitely a distraction, annoyance or whatever you want to call it!! Yes, as players, we are taught to exhale, so that we hit through our shots, but we are not taught SCREAM on top of our lungs!! These girls take it to another level.
Anyway, so we were at the office today and everyone asks what it’s like to work at Wilson, so thought we would give you an inside look to a typical day at Wilson’s Global Headquarters.
Special thanks to Kari, Vicky, Cassandra, Samera, Erika, Molly, Annie and Carlos for showing us around the Wilson Tennis floor!! 😉
Until later, Tracy
